I never would have thought that at only 12 weeks pregnant, I would be able to find out the gender of our little monkey. But like a little surprise blessing, the teeny weeny one chose to strike a "spread eagle" pose for my (fabulous and funny) ultrasound technician, and with utmost certainty, we were told we were having a boy. We've got the pics to prove it (I will add the photo as soon as I am able). I was so thankful to have my mother-in-law with me at the appointment when we found out the exciting news.
I was actually surprised at HOW excited I was to hear we will be having a boy. Certainly, having grown up in a house with two sisters, raising two little girls would seem more familiar to me, and less new and scary. But honestly, I kind of like the newness and unfamiliarity of it. I've already told both my mother-in-law and my husband that they are going to have to help me learn the ropes of changing diapers and potty training this time around. :)
It also seems that the teeny weeny one is QUITE active. I'm pretty sure that during the course of the hour or so of the ultrasound, the baby moved about a gazillion times. I'm pretty sure he did a few jumping jacks, a short tap dance, a couple of laps around my womb, and some spins and turns. It made me dizzy just to watch him in action. Of course, when I relayed this information to C, we both kind of nervous-giggled. We are going to have our HANDS FULL.
....so I am definitely going to have to change my blog tagline.
...and what about the title of my blog? My blog is named after the nickname I use for Emmy. I doubt I will use the same nickname for the monkey. Maybe I should just rename my blog "Mooshkatoo and Monkey" :) It's kinda catchy.
